We’re Engaged; The Proposal in Paris!

Happy Monday everyone!!  I am beyond excited to officially announce that Doug and I are engaged!!  Writing those words is still such a new feeling, and I have been on cloud nine since the moment I could finally call Doug my fiancĂ©!

Doug and I have been together for close to 5 1/2 years, and from the moment we started our relationship I knew that he was my person, my soulmate, and the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with!  That made it pretty easy to say yes when he got down on one knee! 😉 

Doug and I, and one of our best friends, spent the past two weeks exploring as many places in Europe as we possibly could, and Paris, France happened to be on the list!  Paris has always been my number one travel destination, and since I was around the age of five I had always talked about my dream of visiting the Eiffel Tower.  Our first full day in Paris (May 27, 2017) was the day we had planned to visit the Eiffel Tower, and when we arrived I could not believe my eyes!  It is much bigger in person, and even more beautiful than I ever could’ve imagined!  

We ended up walking to a platform where we had the perfect view of the Eiffel Tower just as the sun was setting.  We spent a little bit of time taking in the view and looking over the city, which is when Doug got down on one knee, and I could finally call my best friend my fiancĂ©!  By that point a crowd had gathered around us, and once Doug put the ring on my finger everyone around us cheered and applauded in celebration!  The best part is, Doug had our best friend secretly follow us to the Eiffel Tower to take some beautiful photos of the moment!

Afterwards we decided to walk down to see the Eiffel Tower close up, and the moment we stepped under it the entire tower began to sparkle!  It was the most beautiful moment of my life, and one I will cherish forever!

Love & Good Vibes
